CLASSES - Permaculture Design Certification Courses & More!

What Our Students Are Saying...
"I thank you, thank you, thank you for the magical experience participating in the Food Forest workshop this past weekend, where we lovingly fulfilled the dream of a Food Forest at the school. I've learned a lot about myself and what it means to be part of and vital connection with our Earth community. You and Michael are excellent educators/facilitators and have been managing this workshop very well; working well with group dynamics, fantastic specific and practical background information, and lots of fun and meaningful learnin'."

Food Forests For All Student

"Learning permaculture from Caroline was a life changing experience. I've gained a better understanding of how to live in harmony with the natural world. The class covered topics from gardening to rainwater harvesting to building with earth-friendly materials, and all with a perspective of working with instead of against nature to get the job done."

Fall 2015 PDC @ ACC

We are very excited to announce that Austin Community College will be offering a 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate course for the 2015 Fall semester. After three years of growing & evolving this special course, we are taking it to the next level with a revamped & reorganized schedule, updated content, & as always - hands on learning. One of my favorite things about this class is the small size, only accepting 15 students maximum, making it small enough for group discussion, many small group learning activities, & more one on one feedback with the instructor & classmates.

Classes will be held both on campus at the Riverside ACC campus, as well as off site for hands on learning & community building.

We have the unique privilege of having a community college that supports permaculture design, including it as a landscape design certification course.

Please contact Caroline Riley with any questions:
